Virtual classrooms use collaboration tools to re-create the structure and learning experiences of a physical classroom. Virtual-classroom programs can be as simple as one-shot, ad hoc Webinars or as complex as formal, semester-long academic courses. Virtual-classroom programs come in two main types: Webinars and courses. Collaboration tools make it possible for distant learners to communicate freely and to work together on tasks common in the virtual classroom. Online meetings are live, real-time sessions that use some combination of chat, virtual polls, whiteboards, application sharing, and audio- and video-conferencing. Publish a comprehensive syllabus listing all the events, activities, and readings of the course. Link to Web pages, forms, and other required resources. Likewise, include links to the roster, policies, requirements, grading criteria, discussion forum, and other resources of the course.
